Wednesday: Paula Dean's Drunken Chicken and Potatoes
1 whole chicken
House seasoning (1 cup salt, 1/4 cup pepper, 1/4 cup garlic pepper)
1 (12oz) can beer
1 sprig rosemary
Preheat a charcoal grill over high heat. When the coals are hot and glowing, carefully push them over to the sides of the grill, leaving an open space in the middle of the grill.
Wash and drain chicken. Coat the chicken inside and out with seasoned salt and house seasoning. Open the can of beer and carefully insert a sprig of rosemary. (I empty the can 1/4 of the way down and cut the top off so the beer can really steam the inside.)
Then, place the beer can into the body cavity starting at the rear of the chicken. Carefully place the chicken on the center of the grill, facing 1 of the banks of hte coals, making sure not to spill the beer. Cover the grill and cook until chicken is done. Approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour, turning the chicken as necessary. The chicken is done with the juice runs clear.
